Walk with us and help us to rebuild lives after stroke

Event date: Saturday 23rd September

Help us celebrate 40 years of supporting stroke affected people and put on your walking shoes and walk with us to raise funds for Bristol After Stroke. 

You can join us for a wonderful 1 mile accessible walk around Eastville Park, or if you are able, for a 6 mile walk along the beautiful Frome Valley Walkway to Oldbury Court, returning back to Eastville Park. 

And if you really want to challenge yourself you may consider doing the walk twice!

This walk is a great opportunity to support a much needed cause while discovering this hidden beauty spot within our city. 

We will have a special scavenger hunt on our 1 mile accessible route and wildlife spotting sheet along our 6 mile route for children and welcome you to join us after for refreshments at the Nissen Hut. We will even have water available for your dog.

All proceeds from the walk will help support our important services which help people in Bristol and South Gloucestershire to rebuild their lives after a stroke. This year we hope to support over 1,000 people. Your support can help make this happen.

We rely on the generosity of people like you to continue our work and support those who need it most.
